RidER Rescue Kit

Having first-aid equipment immediately on hand can make a huge difference in an emergency, yet few mountain bikers actually carry anything with them. The RidER Rescue first-aid kit is designed by a cyclist and former ambulance officer.

 

It includes a huge range of quality products, designed to be of benefit in a variety of different medical situations. Items include saline, wound dressings, shock blanket, antiseptic wipes, burns sachets, triangular bandage, band-aids and more.

While RidER Rescue has everything you’re likely to need, it also folds up into reasonably portable self-contained package. Built in velcro tabs allow the bag to be mounted under the saddle or even under the handlebars if you're running a moderate stem length (there won't be sufficient room if you're running a stubby #enduro style handlebar stem). Alternately, it's compact enough to fit into your average trail hydration pack, so there's no excuse not to take it. The RidER Rescue pack sells for $69 and is available from www.safetystoreaustralia.com.au
